Samantha Crain — Kid Face


Zach Hale
Take away the album name — and its cover — and you’d never know Kid Face was released by a 26-year-old. The most alluring weapon in her arsenal, Samantha Crain’s voice resides somewhere between Nico’s husky croon and Joni Mitchell’s tuneful elegance.

Some of today’s most innovative and creative music videos come from the Norman directorial duo known as Lamar+Nik.


Joshua Boydston
It’s not uncommon for music video directors to work with budgets ranging from thousands to millions. Norman-based production duo Lamar+Nik made its calling card with $80 worth of glue guns and paint pens and a truckload of cardboard.

Vince Gill looks hate in the face


Gazette staff
Sometimes, people surprise you (in a good way). We here at CFN were more than pleasantly surprised last week when we ran across a video of one of Oklahoma’s world-famous country crooners (and Northwest Classen High School grad — go mighty Knights!), Vince Gill, giving those jerks at Westboro Baptist Church the what-haveyou. On Sept. 8, Westboro members set up outside the Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts in Kansas City, Mo., where Gill was set to perform.

Laugh it

OKG7 things to do

Let’s face it: we all love to laugh at the expense of others. Comedian Jim Gaffigan knows this (the guy just put out a book called Dad Is Fat, after all), which is a big reason he has ascended to the top of the stand-up ranks. See Gaffigan poke fun at himself (and maybe eat a Hot Pocket or two) 9 p.m. Friday at WinStar World Casino, 777 Casino Ave. in Thackerville. Tickets are $40-$60. Call (800) 745-3000 or visit

Take that, bad guy


Gazette staff
After almost a year, justice has been served. Paul Edward Factor of Oklahoma City was accused of stabbing a dog in the face at Beck’s Garage (4217 N. Western Ave.) after a night of carousing last August.
